Album review for Beam Up - Zweimal Steppers  /  Beam Up - Higher Level

Beam Up AKA DJ Delay AKA Brian May is a prolific producer and multi-instrumentalist, originally from the UK, now residing in Germany via Australia and Japan. Recent 7 s co-released with One-Drop Berlin and several remixes (notably a Sizzla dub rocked repeatedly by Rodigan) set the stage for his wicked debut on ZamZam, showcasing two of the many sides of Beam Up. Zweimal Steppers is a heavy and heady journey into propulsive 4/4 dubwise with syncopated percussion, swirling keys (courtesy of Frenchman Dubble Dubble), and sonic trompe líoeil lurking around every corner. The bright, shimmering surface rides a massive bass undertow like sparkling waves over a bottomless ocean trench. May goes hard on the tape delay and reels out the reverbs in truly masterful style and fashion. Higher Level is a next-genre unto itself, a wicked missive from an under-repped area of dub & reggae history. Part futurism, part homage, the bass and kick usher in a sic-fi take on The Clash (with shades of The Police, and a double-time riddim reminiscent of The English Beatís finer moments). The guitar, played by Australian collaborator Joelistics, is a 1966 Fender Telecaster - Joe Strummerís favorite - hence the brilliant revive feel. Electric bass and trumpet by May round out a high-stepping future 2Tone rocker guaranteed to wheel at your next Punky Reggae Party.
